The Canadian Centre of Ethics in Sport says 20-year-old Matt Socholotiuk is the first athlete in North America to be caught using H-G-H. He’s one of nine Waterloo Warriors football players facing punishment for violating anti-doping rules.
The 2nd-year running-back from Waterford has been suspended three years for his use of human growth hormone, a violation discovered through a blood test. Socholotiuk also provided a urine sample which revealed adverse levels of testosterone. Based on his suspension he’s eligible to return to play June 4th, 2013.
Meanwhile the names of three other anti-doping rule violators were released by C-C-E-S today including that of London’s Spencer Zimmerman-Cryer. The 3rd-year Warriors’ centre admitted to using the steroid Oral-Turinabol. Because Zimmerman-Cryer quickly confessed to using the banned substance he was hit with a one year suspension retro-active to March 30th, the date he came clean. It means he’s eligible to return to play March 30th, 2011.
